Beyond our gratitude for the past, there is also the recognition that we belong to the future. There are people who will one day say they are who they are, for better or worse, because of us.
While we will take time to honor all those who have passed, we want to especially recognize those family and friends who have passed since the last All Saints Day (November 2018-October 2019).
We need your help. If you would like us to include the name of an important person in your life who has passed in this time frame, please email us that name no later than noon on Friday, October 25.
Please include their name as you would like it presented as well as their relationship to you.
Thank you for helping make this Sunday even more meaningful for us all.
On All Saints' Day, it is not just the saints of the church that we should remember in our prayers, but all the foolish ones and wise ones, the shy ones and overbearing ones, the broken ones and whole ones, the despots and tosspots and crackpots of our lives who, one way or another, have been our particular fathers and mothers and saints, and whom we loved without knowing we loved them and by whom we were helped to whatever little we may have, or ever hope to have, of some kind of seedy sainthood of our own.
